NEW term starts with much-awaited £58,000 school cross­ing NOT in ser­vice. Coun­cil bosses have apol­o­gised for the de­lays to the puf­fin cross­ing on Broad­way which is now op­er­at­ing (web­site and Free Press Septem­ber 9) Kee­ley Love: Six weeks they have had to com­plete this while all the kids were off and traf­fic less heavy. Jamie Moor­house: I’m all for child safety... but 58 grand for a cross­ing? Would this money not be bet­ter spent on a frick­ing lolly pop lady, they don’t get over £58k a year surely? Dan Mac: Haha this is hi­lar­i­ous. When they started work on it I won­dered if they’d fin­ish it on time. They only had three weeks! It was cut­ting it fine. Viv Mur­phy: It was dan­ger­ous this morn­ing. Some sen­si­ble driv­ers stopped for the kids but the men in com­pany cars which I ob­served, drove straight through. It’s an ac­ci­dent wait­ing to hap­pen. Lind­say Harris: Mad it’s not work­ing when schools gone back. The traf­fic’s re­ally bad and the kids have been strug­gling to cross. It’s re­ally dan­ger­ous Neil Ash­man Snr: Waste of money . No dif­fer­ence to a nor­mal cross­ing only kids will keep press­ing but­tons for fun . Thank god I go work early Phil Ren­wick: £58k ??? for a cross­ing ?? What is hap­pen­ing around here? Emma Far­row: Put a lolly pop per­son on till it’s fixed! Sim­ple! Nik Litwinenko-Jones: Much needed! Un­be­liev­able they couldn’t com­plete in the school sum­mer hol­i­days. Elaine De­laney Wright: What ex­actly is a puff­ing cross­ing. What’s wrong with a ze­bra! Hi­lary Lu­cas: LCC should pro­vide a lol­lipop per­son to help them cross un­til it is work­ing!!! Tr­ish Fitz­patrick: It costs so much partly be­cause there was six blokes on a Sun­day work­ing on it! Dou­ble time for those chaps and they still couldn’t get it ready on time! Emma Cole: Is the cross­ing gold plated or what? 58k is un­real.

CAN you help find miss­ing ‘ele­phant’ Nel­lie? Nel­lie was a star of the Bacup Flow­er­pot Fes­ti­val but went miss­ing from out­side the mar­ket (web­site and Free Press Septem­ber 9) Natalie Mccall: I know this is prob­a­bly a joke to some and has been re­ported to have been taken by drunks but look at it if you had put the time and ef­fort to make nel­lie in the first place and then re­pair her when she got dam­aged. It must be so an­noy­ing and dis­heart­en­ing to see this if u made it. Hope she is re­turned and in one piece Michael Badger Tay­lor: Bet­ter call the Pres­i­dent... Didn’t she go off with a Trump? An­drew Birkby: It must be in Rawten­stall as I’m sure that’s ele­phant poop all over my lawn! Sarah Bell: Aww my kids like see­ing this be­fore we go up to grandma’s. Jamie Moor­house: She packed her trunk? Lea Pearce: She’s gone off to the cir­cus.
